#BtC4A Pet Fire Safety Day: #Dearborn #Michigan Barbecue Open House Benefits Special Needs Animals

FROM DAKOTA’S DEN: This is a timely post for two super important reasons. Today is Pet Fire Safety Day, and last Thursday night we had an experience in our apartment/condo complex that could have been deadly. Long story short, we smelled smoke. The entire downstairs of our building was full of smoke. I was a nervous wreck, I called the fire department and prayed that Dakota would come to us to have his leash put on (normally he won’t unless he has to go to the bathroom, but that’s a whole different story). Thankfully he came to us readily, I tricked Cody with treats to put him into his carrier and we all went outside. Everyone was safe. A young man downstairs had fallen asleep with a hot dog boiling on the stove. Had I not called swiftly our entire building could have gone up in flames. Dakota was calm and patient, he was fabulous with the flashing lights, smells, sounds, etc. Please, please learn more about Pet Fire Safety Day and if you are in Michigan, please attend the event below.

The memory of a beloved family pet is the inspiration for a special annual fundraiser hosted by the Abraham family of Dearborn.  The family is opening their home to the public on July 25 to help support the Friends for Animals of Metro Detroit’s (FAMD) Hope’s Heroes program for special needs animals.

 All are welcome to attend the sixth annual Abraham’s Open House and Barbecue, which will be held from 5 to 9 p.m. on Saturday, July 25 at 510 Crescent Drive, Dearborn.  City of Dearborn Firefighters and Police Department are sponsors of the gathering.

 

The Open House is in memory of the Abraham family’s beloved Labrador retriever, Dublin, who was tragically killed in a 2009 house fire. 

 

“This celebration is a way for our family to honor Dublin and simultaneously help the Friends for Animals of Metro Detroit, which benefits so many in our community,” commented Councilman Abraham. “We are especially honored to have the continued support from the Dearborn firefighters, who were on the spot when we needed them personally and to help recognize Pet Fire Safety Day, which takes place on July 15.”

 

In its first four years, the Abraham’s Open House has raised more than $47,000, directly benefiting shelter animals who require extra special hope.

 

Delicious barbecue will be served by Smokey Rhodes BBQ and Park Place Caterers.  Parking is in a residential neighborhood with arrangements available for special needs guests.

 

Friends for Animals of Metro Detroit helps care for thousands of rescued animals annually, as they prepare to become adoptable pet family members.  Sometimes animals with severe injuries or special needs arrive at the Shelter and require extra resources.  The Hope’s Heroes program is designed specifically to help care for animals that require extraordinary measures to give them a second chance.

 

“This Open House is a key fundraising event for our special needs animals,” said Elaine Greene, executive director, FAMD.  “We are very grateful to the Abraham family and the Dearborn fire and police departments for their continued support of Hope’s Heroes.”

 

Contributions of $50 per person are suggested, with all donations welcome.  If unable to attend, donations can also be made online  by clicking here .

FROM DAYS OF THE YEAR:

“The combined efforts of the Kennel Club and ADT Security Services led to the first Pet Fire Safety Day being held in the late 2000s. The idea behind the event is to make pet owners aware of the hazards their beloved cat, dog, or other animal could pose in the home with regard to fire. Many fires are caused by pets, especially when they are left alone in a property and the intention is that by highlighting the dangers to owners it can help in preventing them.”

“Pet owners should take advantage of the day to discuss who in a home is responsible for helping a pet escape in the event of a blaze and carry out some practice escape drills. They can also use Kennel Club advice to pet proof their home against fires and install a pet alert notice in a window for use by emergency services.”

The second reason today is important to me is because today is:

#BtC4A: Alopecia in Dogs Commemoration for Children with Alopecia Day, A Guest Blog By: Jessica Claudio, DVM

Blog the Change

The earliest veterinary article I remember writing was entitled, “Becoming a Veterinarian” in grade school in 2000.  I gave Artemis, my first feline patient, subcutaneous fluids for his chronic kidney disease twice a week in undergraduate school.  I worked as a zookeeper in Indiana, and then spent a year researching implications of golf course expansion on two toad species from Arizona. I was enrolled into Tuskegee University School of Veterinary Medicine in 2009. During veterinary school I was an intern at zoos in Ecuador, Maryland and Ohio. I also worked at a rescue center for retired laboratory chimpanzees, and wildlife centers in Belize and Virginia. Memorable procedures include surgeries on cats and dogs; anesthetizing birds, bunnies, and turtles; yearly physical examinations on chimpanzees and wild Virginia black bears; and venipuncture on turtles and owls. My favorite memory is intubation of a cheetah for a physical examination.

 

Today I would like to draw attention to Alopecia areata and other possible diagnoses of alopecia in dogs. Yesterday was Children with Alopecia Day. This article can show children that they are not alone in their struggle with alopecia.

 

What is Alopecia?

 

Alopecia is fur or hair loss.

Meet my dog Jade.  She just got done getting brushed. You can see her fur that came out on the brush. Your pet normally loses fur through cycles. This is not the type of  fur loss I will be discussing today. Alopecia causes areas of baldness on your animal’s skin.

 Alopecia areata in dogs is thought to be an autoimmune disorder similar to the disease in humans. It appears as patches of fur missing on a dog. Two dog breeds that more commonly get alopecia areata are the English Setter and the Dachshund. Alopecia areata must be differentiated from many other diseases that cause alopecia. Today, I will go over some common causes of alopecia, and shine light on a very special and beautiful alopecic dog breed.

 Three common reasons in dogs for getting alopecia:

 

1) Endocrine Diseases

 

Some common endocrine diseases that can cause alopecia include: Hypothyroidism, Cushing’s Disease, and Alopecia X.

 

2) Food Allergies

 

Jade has food allergies.  If your dog is itching, scratching, and developing alopecia with no cause in sight, it could be food allergies.

 

3) Parasites and Fungus

 

Flea Allergy Dermatitis, mites and ringworm can cause hair loss on your pet. Flea allergy dermatitis causes alopecia at the hind end, neck, and tail. Ringworm and some mites are transmissible to humans.

 

If you see unexplained hair loss on your pet, do not hesitate to make a visit to the veterinary office. There is one circumstance of alopecia, which if brought to the attention of a veterinarian would make her smile. One special breed has fur loss in their genes. This dog does not need fur to be naturally gorgeous.

Chinese Crested Dog - Powderpuff

 

 

   The Chinese Crested dog is a breed that has the hereditary alopecia trait. They are just beautifully blessed free of fur in certain areas of their body! My mom adopted an extremely sweet and beautiful little Chinese Crested mix, named Sweet Pea. She did not inherit that alopecic trait, but you can see the resemblance in her facial features.

 Thank you to my gracious hosts, Caren  and Dakota, for allowing me to guest blog in their den. If you liked this article, you may also like other recent important healthcare articles from Caren, Dakota and their guests, such as Canine Flu Cases for 2015 on the Rise  and April Is Pet First Aid Awareness Month. I have also recently written an article on Pet First Aid that is part of a short, three part article series on how to prevent and provide emergency care for a pet that is in a hit by car accident. Have you ever though of adopting a special care shelter animal with hair loss? 

 

ACVO/StokesRx National Service Animal Eye Exam Event Gears Up For 8th Year #BtC4A

FROM DAKOTA’S DEN:This is a guest post by Stacee Daniel,  the Executive Director of ACVO. We are proud to feature such an important event that will benefit many!

Service animal owners and handlers can register April 1-30

for a free screening eye exam this May

In the spring of 2012, Jenine Stanley and her dog, Swap, participated in the ACVO/StokesRx National Service Animal Eye Exam Event just as they had each year since the program’s inception in 2008. It again took place in a participating ophthalmologist’s office, but this time ‘Swap’ was diagnosed with Pigmentary Uveitis, a condition that would affect his vision later in his career.

 

"Swap"

“Swap”

“The wonderful veterinary ophthalmologists saw him every six months thereafter and we monitored the condition for changes,” said Stanley. “Had I not gone to the event and had Swap’s eyes checked, the condition could have become much worse, including painful inflammation. I also would not have known what to look for in terms of changes in his work and how his actual vision is affected.”

 

Swap’s story is just one amongst hundreds, where this screening process has helped these amazing Service Animals and their owners manage or overcome a previously undiagnosed ophthalmic condition. 2015 marks the 8th Annual ACVO/StokesRx National Service Animal Eye Exam Event. Since its inception in 2008 over 30,000 Service Animals have received free screening eye exams, over 7,000 in 2014 alone. In the beginning, the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologist’s ® (ACVO®) public relations chair, Dr. Bill Miller, recognized the good that was already being done by many members; the majority of whom already provided similar free exams across the country. He, too, employed such a program in his clinics, but he had a vision to combine and expand these individual events into something with much more of an impact.

 

The goal of the ACVO/StokesRx National Service Animal Eye Exam Event is to provide as many free screening exams as possible to eligible Service Animals across the U.S. and Canada throughout the month of May. Service Animals including: guide, handicapped assistance, detection, military, search and rescue, and certified-current, registered therapy animals, that all selflessly serve the public.

This year’s event is sponsored by ACVO® and Stokes Pharmacy, as well as several generous industry sponsors, volunteer ophthalmologists and staff. Participating doctors volunteer their services, staff and facilities at no charge to participate in the event.

HOW TO REGISTER FOR THE 2015 EVENT:

To qualify, Service Animals must be “active working animals” that were certified by a formal training program or organization, or are currently enrolled in a formal training program. The certifying organization could be national, regional or local in nature. Owners/agents for the animal(s) must FIRST register the animal via an online registration form beginning April 1 at www.ACVOeyeexam.org. Registration ends April 30. Once registered online, the owner/agent will receive a registration number and will be allowed access to a list of participating ophthalmologists in their area. Then, they may contact a specialist to schedule an appointment, which will take place during the month of May. Times may vary depending on the facility and are filled on a first-come, first-served basis, so clients should try to register and make appointments early.

FIRE SAFETY DOGS’ FIRE SAFETY TIPS

 

  1.      How often should you hold a family fire drill?

Families should practice their home fire drills at least two times each year. That activity will help remind family members what to do in an actual fire-related situation. It is also important for families to practice their fire drills when special guests stay in their home as well.

fire safety escape map

2.      How should you go about it? Is there a step-by-step plan? 

 

To develop a home escape plan, follow these easy steps:

  1. Set aside some time for family members to prepare a home escape map.
  2. Construct a map of the home illustrating all doors and windows.
  3. Ask family members to identify at least two ways out of each room in the home.

Post the escape map on the refrigerator door or other public area

  1. for all to view.
  2. Ensure all windows and doors open easily.
  3. Practice the home fire drill at least twice a year and when special guests stay in the home.

 

It is important to create, review, and practice the family fire drill for each level of the home at least twice a year. That way, family members will know how to quickly get out of their home in case of fire. A quick exit is critical since a small flame can turn into a major fire within as little as 30 seconds, and it can completely engulf the entire house within three minutes.

 

Practicing the home escape plan is especially important when members of the home have a disability, are elderly, and are small children. The plan should be practiced during the day and at night.

1.                  How often should you change the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms?

Experts recommend that batteries be tested at least once a month and be changed once a year.

According to the United States Fire Administration, several studies have concluded that when working smoke alarms are present, the chance of dying from the fire can be reduced by 50%.

The challenge is that not all homes have smoke alarms. It is estimated that some 12% of all homes in the United States do not have smoke alarms. Another problem is that almost one-third of all homes with smoke alarms in the United States do not work; one contributing factor is dead batteries in smoke alarms.  Another concern is that numerous homes do not have enough smoke alarms to properly alert family members and guests in the home.

2.How many alarms are needed?

Smoke alarms should be located on each floor level of the home and outside each sleeping area. However, to avoid alarms from becoming activated from cooking fumes and car exhausts, smoke alarms should not be placed in kitchens and garages. In addition, do not place alarms in unheated areas, such as crawl spaces and attics, where it can get too hot or cold for the devices.

3.How can you make sure that they’re working?

Care and maintenance begins with reading the care instructions that come with the smoke alarms.

Smoke alarms have a “test” button that can be pushed to test the alarm. Should the alarm not work after being tested, replace it immediately.

Should the smoke alarms be out of reach for testing, there are different options for smoke alarms. One smoke alarm has a test feature which can be activated by a flashlight being shone upon it while another brand has a test that is automated, activating at the same day and time each week. If unable to do the proper testing, these smoke alarms can help an individual test the device where proper testing might not be able to be done.

In those smoke alarms that have batteries, change the batteries once a year and occasionally vacuum the smoke alarm to remove dust and/or cobwebs. Smoke alarms should be replaced every 10 years.

2.               How do you make sure that your fire extinguishers are in working order?

[The U. S. Fire Administration has a webpage with some GREAT info on fire extinguishers. The page provides some great maintenance tips as well as tips on when to use a fire extinguisher:

http://www.usfa.fema.gov/citizens/home_fire_prev/extinguishers.shtm

Personally, I cannot recommend the use of fire extinguishers and would prefer that people get out and stay out and leave extinguishing the fire to the firefighter professionals.

3.               Why is all of this important? How many house fires happen each year? How many end in fatalities?

According to the National Fire Protection Association, fire departments responded to 370,000 home fires in 2011. In that year, fires caused 13,910 civilian injuries, 2,520 civilian deaths, and $6.9 billion in damage.

The leading cause of house fires and home fire injuries is cooking. The second leading cause is faulty heating equipment. A leading cause of home fire deaths is smoking.

Finally, on average, seven people die each day in the United States due to home fires.

This month Be the Change for Animals is spreading the message about April being National Volunteer Month “a time to celebrate ordinary people doing extraordinary things to improve communities, by  highlighting  some of the wonderful volunteers who help animal shelters, rescue groups and other animal-related charities Be the Change for Animals!”

april is national volunteer month

In honor of April being National Volunteer Month  “Celebrating People in Action” I would like  to  celebrate author C.A. Wulff and share the valuable resource that she has written,  called How to Change the World in 30 Seconds, A Web Warrior’s Guide to Animal Advocacy Online.

From How to Change the World in 30 Seconds: this book is dedicated to all of the individuals and groups who devote their heads, hands and hearts to improving the world for companion animals. You are all, every one of you, my heroes.

how to change the world in 30 seconds

There are many of us who want to help animals but often we are overwhelmed and don’t know where to begin.  Often we think it takes a lot of time, money and other resources that we don’t think that we have. But we DO! We ALL can make a difference for even one animal and this book shows us how. It offers practical steps to get started and uses dog advocacy as the focus. It explains in just THIRTY SECONDS a DAY on the Internet we can begin to make a difference in the lives of animals and can also help to “change the world!”

Did you know?

That it was the loss of a special dog that led famed anthropologist Jane Goodall to Africa to study chimpanzees? (Neither did I! I learned this in How to Change the World in 30 Seconds). Ms. Goodall said:

“I learned everything I know about animals in general from the dog I had as a child. He taught me that animals have personalities and minds and feelings and what a true friend was. I never would have been able to go to Africa if Rusty hadn’t died, because I would never have been able to leave him.”

In this book you will  learn that JUST BY ADVOCATING ONE DOG who ends up being saved, that dog changes three things

YOU

the dog

the people who have him now

That dog could go on to become a service dog helping a handicapped person,  maybe he will become a search and rescue dog. The more dogs (and other animals we help save) the more a ripple effect is caused.

How to Change the World in 30 Seconds explains ALL of the useful resources that are at our fingertips each and every day that we can use to save animals! Just a few of the MANY resources cited in this valuable guide are:

Freekibble– a website that donates food to shelter animals just by answering a daily trivia question.

The Animal Rescue Site which offers a big purple button on their home page that says “Click here to give, it’s FREE!” and when you click on that button the site sponsors will donate food and care to animals living in shelters and sanctuaries.

Petfinder where 13,969 U.S. shelters and rescues list the animals they have available for adoption.

In this book you will learn about how you can help animals through using Twitter, Facebook, and a bevy of other resources. You will learn about various animal rescue groups, pet transport pages/sites, you will have enough resources at YOUR FINGERTIPS to help YOU  “volunteer’ FROM YOUR OWN HOME!

How to Change the World in 30 Seconds will also teach you how YOU can make a difference by heading out into the community and being one of millions of volunteers who champion various animal causes in a variety of ways.

Rescue Groups always need people to:

  • answer phones
  • collect donations
  • place containers for pet food drives
  • manning booths at adoption events
  • creating signage
  • showing animals at adoption events
  • fostering animals
  • donate newspapers, towels, food, medical supplies

the list goes on and on!

By reading How to Change the World in 30 Seconds you will learn that YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE in the life of an animal in ways that you never dreamed were possible!
